Annie says I'm causing trouble.

Mrs. Azul: "I'm allergic to everything blue. Blue paint, blue berries, pills with blue dye."

Dr. Grumpy: "You're wearing blue jeans."

Mrs. Azul: "I am? Oh, I'm color blind. I'll have to change when I get home, so I don't get a rash."

Tricky allergy for a color-blind person. How does she even know she has it?

Are you really a neurologist or are you a psychiatrist in disguise? You sure seem to have a lot of patients who are nuts!

I thought color blindness was very rare in women?

::raises hand:: I'll be Mrs. Azul's seeing eye clothing shopper! Of course I do charge an arm and a leg, but I promise they won't be blue.

returs - what Mrs. Azul will do with her jeans.

I keep thinking patients are eventually going to make sense. But, no.

Had a kid in my group at day camp who was supposedly allergic to purple, so no purple grapes, or purple popsicles/otter pops, or grape juice and other purple things. I don't think I ever saw him wear purple either, although i don't think many boys at age 5 wear purple anyways.

In his case maybe his mom was crayzee...or he had an actual allergy to whatever makes things purple

Annie's right I guess--but some things just HAVE to be done!

Loren! You beat me to it!
Seriously Grumpy, what ARE you seeing all these people for anyway?

Also how rare is colour blindness for the colour blue? Is that even genetically possible?

Red/Green colorblindness is by far the more common, and it's usually sex-linked, and almost never occurs in women. There is a much rarer blue/yellow version, and that seems to be at least as if not more common in women than men, though still rarer than red/green.

I went out with a guy who was red/green colorblind. He hated the sidways traffic lights a few cities in the area used, and he also couldn't tell the difference between my deep blue plates and my royal purple dress.

There are multiple ways to make something blue, and I'm pretty sure the dye used in food coloring is not the same thing that makes blueberries blue. (Or slighly purple.)

I could be wrong, though.

So she's allergic to light in the wave lengths of 475-400nm, is that what her claim is? Crazy lady is crazy.
